Launching Ideas ... Recovering History
Please note that the F-35 has been removed from the flight line so that it may be prepared to become part of the permanent exhibit in the new building.
Making some real progress on the New Building!
Naval Test Wing Atlantic personnel returning the F9F-8 (bureau number 144276) to the museum flight line on a very rainy and cold Friday morning, 5 December 2014. The aircraft has just undergone a complete restoration by our shipmates at VX-1 aboard the Naval Air Station at Patuxent River, Maryland and looks beautiful!
The Mach Combat Simulators are improved and once again operational!
The Exterior of the new Patuxent River Naval Air Museum and Tourism Center is beginning to get its outer skin.
THE PATUXENT RIVER NAVAL AIR MUSEUM,
a community supported museum,
is open and available. The museum is adjacent to the site where construction of the new Museum building has resumed.
The museum celebrates the past, present and future of the Research, Development Test and Evaluation of Naval Aircraft.
